Spitting Image?

So, last weekend we went to a family reunion of sorts to celebrate my FIL's 80th birthday.  FIL's 5 children were present, several grandchildren, and even a couple of great grands.  MIL has recently made DVD's from all her old home slides and videos.   As we were watching them, it was such fun comparing who looked like who.    The resemblence between Dh as a baby and our youngest son as a baby is astonishing!  What I found amusing was the 'little things', such as how Dh's brother had one long patch of hair (think Sonic the Hedgehog) as a baby, and our son had the same.     It was also pointed out that our son has his paternal Grandma's smile.... something I had never noticed.

It was also interesting to learn about characteristics, body language, and habits that the cousins share.  In fact, it was kinda weird...in a fun way!


Who do your kids' resemble?   Do they share certain gestures & traits with other family members?

Our girls really resemble no one. DD 19 sort of looks like one of her cousins. DD 22, DH and FIL all have/had tempers.

Interesting!   I found it so interesting that my sons and a couple of their cousins actually stand alike!  The way they hold their hands is alike, the way they tilt their heads...   these are not guys that have seen a lot of one another, they've only seen each other maybe once or twice a year growing up...and haven't been together in a few years.

 Ds1 is a male version of me. Ds2 is the spitting image of dh when he was little. Dd looks a lot like one of dh's sisters.

Our dd is a good mix between her dad and I.

Our sons look nothing like either of us but very much like others on both sides of our family. Our oldest son looks similar to my husband's grandfather when he was a boy as well as my oldest cousin. My youngest son looks very similar to my other cousin when he was young. He has a bit of his personality as well, lol.

That is how Dh's family is.  They all look a lot alike.   Dh's daughter and our youngest son look the most like him.   DH's oldest son looks like others in Dh's family and our other son looks more like me.
